Roadrunner Records proudly announces the signing of the Joliet, IL-based 6-piece band FIVE POINTE O. Brought to the Roadrunner family by the same man who brought in new acts Dry Kill Logic (debut release out now) and Sinch, Paul Conroy (Roadrunner A&R) has the following to say: " I am extremely excited about the signing of Five Pointe O. I signed Five Pointe O because I believe they represent the future of true heavy metal. This band has nothing in common with the glut of pimp rock/nu-metal bands that are over-saturating the market place. Their music uniquely combines brutal heaviness with melody. I am planing for the band to record their debut release for Roadrunner this summer." Sounds pretty incredible, ya? Unfortunately, you are going to have to wait to hear something from them, as we do not have any music to post. A head's up to all of you in the (sweet town) Chicago area - you can catch a sneak peak of this band this upcoming Friday (06/29). They will be playing at Metro in Chicago, Il w/ God Forbid, Factory 81, and Tub Ring. Doors: 6pm Show: 6:30 Onward and upward...more to come...
